to you saying, look, congress might not blow up the economy for no good reason. or if i do have to say it, i shouldn't sound excited about it. that should be a given. but in recent years, it has not been a given. and the reason it hasn't been is in some ways traceable to this guy. you know that guy. that is grover norquist. if you go by his name or his picture, he may not seem imposing. but in the republican party, he's a guy that breaks your knees if you vote for higher taxes. all republicans pretty much sign it and they are very, very, very loathed to break it. and that's made it impossible to reach a deficit reduction deal, until now. "the new york times" has an article in which republican after republican after republican goes on the record by name dismissing his pledge and his power. peter king says a pledge is good at the time you sign it. in 1941 i would have voted to declare war on japan. but each congress is a new congress and you can't have a rule that you're never going to raise or lower taxes. i don't want to rule anything out. senator of georgia said, i'm frankly not concerne
's entire economy. we can't afford it and we can't afford to leave it intact. so try as they might, remember the last congress republicans passed a lot of bills out of the house of representatives that tore apart obama care. as even the president calls it now. they didn't go anywhere in the senate and meanwhile, alex, after the thanksgiving break, the principles are expected to get back together to begin negotiating in earnest. as you're right the clock is ticking. just a little bit more than one month to go before the nation heads over that fiscal cliff. al alex? >> 38 days and counting. thanks so much. let's go from the white house to the middle east now. palestinians and israelis are keeping a cease-fire alive. but many call the truce extremely fragile. an attempted border breach threatened the calm yesterday. israeli forces shot and killed a palestinian man. he was one of hundreds testing israeli security at the border. nbc's martin fletcher is live for us in tel aviv. good saturday morning to you, martin. can this shooting jeopardize the cease-fire? and then when does the next phase beg
economy and how do we get us back to that and, two, how do you solve a problem? >> second big development. a growing number of liberal democrats say they're willing to risk going off the cliff to make sure raising taxes on the wealthy is part of the deal. politico is calling them cliff jumpers. l good morning to both of you. >> good morning. >> let me play a couple of clips to start out about the pledge. >> i will violate the pledge, long story short, for the good of the country only if democrats will do entitlement reform. >> a pledge you sign 20 years ago, 18 years ago, is for that congress. if i were in congress in 1841 i would have supported declaration of war against japan. i won't attack japan today. the world changed and the economic situation is different. >> i am not oblg gate on the pledge. i was just elected. the only thing i am honoring is the oath that i take when i serve when i am sworn in in january. >> chambliss already made a similar statement last week. the question is is this a real softening of positions? does it give them room to make deal. >> two things.
to then quickly craft a legislative deal that can stop the damage to the economy that would occur if we went off the cliff and stayed off the cliff. john boehner recognizes that the fiscal cliff is the president's leverage, but boehner believes he has leverage, too. politico reported this morning president barack obama made a demand of how john boehner near the end of their first white house meeting on the fiscal cliff, raised the debt limit before year's end. boehner responded, quote, there is a price for everything. boehner told president obama at the white house that the debt limit increase is quote my leverage. although he added that he's flexible on when it should be done. senator durbin said today that raising the debt ceiling must be part of any deal with republicans. >> i also think that the president isn't going to sign off on any agreement that doesn't include some certainty as to budgets, appropriations, dealing with our debt ceiling. we're not going to find ourselves with some big party celebrating in february and then turn around and march and have another doomsday scenario with the
, it could have serious consequences on the economy. >> i want to ask you both to weigh in on this question. kristen, you do the political angle and neil you give me the nuts and bolts. yesterday john boehner wrote an op-ed calling for the health care law to be part of the negotiations, he wrote in part the president's health care law at the massive, expensive, unworkable program when the national debt exceeds the size of our country's entire economy. we can't afford it, and can't afford to leave it intact. is john boehner right? >> no. look, it's a law that does a lot of things with the health care system. it's not predominantly a fiscal issue, in that that when the government does anything, it affects taxes. if you're the president you have no incentive to allow the health care law to be on the table in these negotiations. maybe on the edges there are a few spending programs you're willing to negotiate over. but in terms of the health insurance mandate and exchanges, all the things in this complicated law that passed two years ago, you're really going to draw the line and say, we're not g

and certainly the largest threat to the u.s. economy. >> meredith whitney was talking back in 2010 about a then- looming financial crisis involving state and local governments across the country. it was a debt crisis which some people believe could derail the recovery and require another big bailout package that no one in washington wants to talk about. >> the day of reckoning has arrived. that's it. and it's gonna arrive everywhere. time may vary a little bit depending upon which state you're in, but it's coming. [ticking] >> welcome to 60 minutes on cnbc. i'm steve kroft. in this edition, we look at three stories linked by the financial collapse of 2008. first, we examine a scam that's cost thousands of americans their homes. then we look into wall street's shadow market of credit default swaps. finally, a report on the perilous state of state finances. we begin with the foreclosure crisis. in the aftermath of the great recession, the huge number of foreclosed properties was a significant factor in weighing down the economy. many were stuck on the market for an unexpected reason: the banks co
will it do to our economy? >> i don't think it will do that much. i think people will assume a solution will be found quite promptly. it's a little like the debt ceiling question. people know -- the rest of the world may think we're idiotic at times but don't think we're going to commit suicide. so i think if -- i hope something gets worked out before january 1st. if it goes a little bit beyond that, i don't think -- >> if it's january 10th -- >> if you guaranteed me that the fiscal cliff, we would go past that, i wouldn't sell a share of stock today. >> you have confidence that in the end they will fix it? >> and that this economy works. >> he is confident of a deal huh? >> he really does. he believes there's a possibility -- he thinks it will take some time. first thing he wants to see is a minimum tax, which they can do now in terms of people who make more than a million dollars, minimum tax you have to pay it before you do the tax reform. too many competing interests to get it done immediately. interesting man. we'll have more from him. >>> to republican politics,
represented their interests. >> we also have a terrible economy. a weak economy is the only reason they're in the game. i'm going to end this conversation because i don't think it's been resolved, erin, and i -- erin, you made a good case for younger people. that's the future of every party. go younger. i agree with that. the problem is they have to decide ideologically can they compete for senate seats in pennsylvania, maybe not massachusetts, but new jersey, connecticut, new england? are they going to give you up a portion of the country and say, we're going to make our votes in the south? it seems to me that's a problem they've got right there. they've given up both coasts, by the way. that's my argument, not yours. robert, thank you for coming in tonight. happy thanksgiving. you should be in cars heading home. erin, you've been doing great this year. great coverage. >>> coming up, republicans aren't the only ones fighting among themselves. some progressives are warning president obama, they don't like this debt reduction deal, they'll let people hear. so it begins. also the republic
. again, growth is rather important and it's what we ought to be rather than raising taxes. if the economy grew at 4% instead of 2% a year for one decade. the federal government would net $5 trillion. that would pay down all of the debt that obama's accumulated in the first four years. if we had grown at reagan rates of growth instead of obama rates of growth, 11 million americans would be at work today who are out of work. that's how you do it with the most regulations. >> what if we carried along the bush rate of growth of the eight years before bk? >> well, there were three periods of growth or low growth during the bush years. he enlded president bush handing president obama the greatest financial hospital past of most people's living memory. the idea that show the republican economic policies have been this wonder yus success story going back the last three decades is poppycock. >> taxes are not the only policy. when he cut marginal tax rates on gains and dividends from 2002, there was four years of strong economic growth from '03 to '07. what you had was fannie mae and freddie mac ma

cut for high-income earners on the economy. there is this supposition, in fact i would call it bedrock republican philosophy economically speaking if you cut rates for top earners it benefits gdp. i will point to everybody for consideration a chart by the david leanhart of the "new york times" that shows what happens when you cut the top income tax rates. it doesn't help gdp. in fact, it falls. explain to me why republicans keep insisting on this fact when it doesn't appear at least to be true? >> well, the basic idea is that if you get to keep more of the rewards for each hour you work you'll work more hours or a little harder or be more likely to start a business. that's not a crazy idea on its face. in fact, it's probably right. the real question, though, is, is it a bigger effect or small effect? so republicans claim time and again this is a huge effect. democrats often claims it's a small effect. in the language of economics this is an argument about elast tisty. like my colleagues here go out and try to measure this. it's a difficult concept to measure. but that's basically the i
regardless of what it means for jobs, or the economy. >>> coming up here, the it's top economic adviser alan krueger. clashes in cairo today, more protests in tahrir square against egypt's president morsi. we'll have a live report. move over george clooney the on yan's kim junge un the sexiest man alive and beijing doesn't get the joke. good day, i'm andrea mitchell live in washington. no joke today on capitol hill. ambassador susan rice's attempt to clear the air with republicans over benghazi did not work as the white house had hoped. senators mccain, ayotte and graham say they have more questions than they had before rice's comments about benghazi. >> we are significantly troubled by many of the answers that we got and some that we didn't get it. >> if you don't know what happened just say you don't know what happened. people can push you to give explanations and you can say i don't want to give bad information. >> that's troubling to me as well, why she wouldn't have asked, i'm the person that doesn't know anything about this, i'm going on every single show. >> joining me now for our dai
of republicans in congress. >> now, dana, when you look at the data out today, it shows the economy heading in the right direction. consumer confidence at a four-year high. home prices increased for six straight months. then when you hear some of the small business owners who met with the president today, they were very vocal in their support of what he's doing. let me show some of what was said after the meeting by some of the small business owners. >> i was very encouraged by the meeting. i felt the president, you know, he really delivered a message of confidence. >> i'm real enthusiastic about president obama and what he's done. >> saying that tax breaks for the rich drive consumers lower down to spend is like saying you can jumpstart -- you can start your car by pouring gasoline on the hood. >> now, soon behind those speakers they'll be negotiating in the west wing. does this work? will this help the president at the negotiating table with the opposition, the republican leadership? >> the opposition responds only to strengths. so to the extent it boosts his numbers for his policy in the
the economy toppling back into recession. >> everyone i've had on this program, all the members of congress, have said to me, joanne, we have to get this done, of course it's going to get done. but we should remember it was a year ago today the grand bargain failed. so what's it going to take? >> you know, i think it might take the new congress being seated. i mean, if you think about it, you still have a lame duck congress so, while the election may have changed the atmosphere and sort of the story line for the members, the actual people themselves are still there. so they've not changed their ideologies at all. i think that the problem is that you have john boehner, president and mitch mcconnell negotiating with the exact same congress that they had when they couldn't make a deal the last time. so i think until the personnel change, i'm not sure you can get a deal. >> and juan kessler, the fact checker for "the washington post," has reported that, you know, you have to come from, like, some point point. you have to have a negotiating point to start with. he said democrats and republicans
around. >> okay. >> what else do we have in news? >> we have the economy. we'll begin there now at 4 past the hour. >> we're going to keep reading the post. go ahead. >> the markets look to rebound after stocks finished relatively flat yesterday following a new warning from the central bank about the fiscal cliff. speaking to the economic club of new york, fed chair ben bernanke urged lawmakers to reach a deal to avoid the automatic spending cuts and tax increases. he said going over the fiscal cliff would pose a substantial risk to the economy. according to a new study the fiscal cliff could give 90% of americans new tax bills when the bush tax rates and some by president obama would both end. the working poor would be among the hardest hit. a tax policy center analysis showed a married couple making about $30,000 a year would on average go from receiving a $15 tax credit to owing $1400. >> wow. >> yeah. that's probably a reason to try and get something done? >> maybe we will. maybe we will. >> you would think. >> yeah. or maybe we can just talk about 2016. >> we could do that as well. h
, they spent a lot of time thinking about the future. so in the next four years who can i trust on the economy, on social issues and foreign policy. and we live in a country that is even pli divided politically and we have close elections. our victory in 2008 was a landslide. it was clear this election was going to be closer, fwiven the economy and divisions in the country. with that being said, we still won electoral college, maybe not a landslide but a clear majority. our popular vote is 3% which is a healthy margin. and i think the reason we won is people understood where we had been economically. all of you have lived through the recession. this is not something that is an academic theory. everyone painfully lived through the recession. we are beginning to recover from that. the economy has created jobs over 5 fnt 5 million jobs which our economy is far too week but the electorate said i'm beginning to feel some progress. does that mean i'm satisfied? of course not. but i'm beginning to feel some progress and i think people thought it was a risk to go back and try economic policies that le
the exiclusive focus. they want to make sure the economy and global aspects of the relations aren't lost. let me bring in chief washington correspondent, john harwood. a 15-minute meeting does that equate to a photo op perhaps? >> sure, it's a photo op. obviously, relation with mexico are extremely he important. the united states is the largest trading partner of mexico. we've seen that immigrants from mexico played a critical role in american elections, and it's a good time to broaden that dialogue to economic issues. you know, the issues of immigration have faded somewhat because the rate of immigration has slowed because our economy has slowed. the drug violence and down somewhat, so it's an aus pishs time for the mexican president-elect and for president obama. he's juggling the fiscal cliff but you have to walk and chew gum at the same time at the white house. >> you have to walk and chew gum where lives are lost almost every day with this drug war that is ongoing in mexico and spilling into as we know parts of texas and other border states. >> exactly. the question is, how do you broaden o
've got to resolve this debt because if we do so, rev, will cause the economy to explode. we will see a resurge in investment, good things happening for the economy. >> congressman ellison, with all of that at stake and clear from every expert that we've heard, it's clear that if we don't solve this problem, if we have the fiscal cliff, if we go over at the end of the year, that we go back into a recession, why would boehner be doing this? i mean, you look at the polls. 49% people polled say keep or expand obama care. only 33% say repeal it. that's the lowest percent for repealing the law since march 10th of 2010. so why would boehner even play with this. >> he's afraid of the special interest. remember, they were spending $14 million a day to lobby against obama care, which i'm glad we've embraced that term. the reality is the special interests who don't want to pay any tacks or as little as they can, who don't want to reform health care. they are still there. all of those guys who signed those pledges for grover norquist, they are still around. i think the and tea party was a fleeti

is the driver of the economy that we find ourselves in. you may not work there but you work in the walmart economy. walmart pioneered the low wage, and the method of union busting, both legal and illegal that allows it to keep wages down. even union places like union supermarkets and grocery stores have had their wages driven down because of competition with walmart. if you can beat walmart, you can beat almost anybody. if you can't if it really isn't possible to make walmart say yes when it wants to say no, then we're looking at a very cramped future for the labor movement. >> that's what it brings to mind. if walmart wins, let's say our walmart and this small strike that may happen tomorrow is not successful what are the implications of a victory. >> whatever happens both sides are going to claim victory, and both sides will admit that this will continue. having talked to many walmart workers, this will continue past friday. the biggest question about the damaged walmart brand politics, is how other r-walmart members and non-members are going to look at this. in the long run over the nex

that this could have a crushing impact on the u.s. economy. what are they saying about this? >> well, that's the problem for policymakers. i do think both republicans and democrats they want a deal. leaders want a deal because this really could be an economic catastrophe. i mean, that's what something that ben bernanke warned repeatedly. put politics aside for a little bit and try to get a deal. but both sides want to get the best deal possible and you're in the going to see any deal anytime soon because we have until january 1st. >> so you're saying they're going to wait until the last second. >> last second, up to christmas, if not new year's. this week when congress comes back and into next week, you see jockeying for leverage. that's what's going to happen. no major deal is going to reach -- be reached much before christmas if there is a deal. >> no plan for bob cusack celebrating the new year. you'll be on the hill waiting for a deal. we'll continue the conference. i appreciate it. switching gears, just into us at cnn, new damage estimates from superstorm sandy. to alison kosik live f
